Thanksgiving – remember to not only be thankful, but to be giving

For many, Thanksgiving is a time for celebration and fun with loved ones. But for others the day can be one of the loneliest times of the year.

At Apollo Insurance Services we know how precious the gift of time can mean to someone. Here are a few ways you and your family can share the spirit of Thanksgiving with others.

Share a holiday dinner with local heroes. Many firefighters, medical specialists and law enforcement professionals spend their holidays on the job. Bring a dinner or treats to your local hospital, fire station or police station, and share the gift of thanks with local heroes who protect and serve our community every day.

Offer comfort to those in need. Connect with local organizations in California that help to feed the hungry or provide warmth and shelter for those without a home. If you’re not sure where to start, spend just a little time researching the websites of our local volunteer organizations like The Let it Be Foundation, Chino Neighborhood House or Caring for the Hills. Find out how and when you can help – and make it a family affair!

Make some new friends at our local retirement homes. While many of our senior citizens are included in Thanksgiving celebrations with family and friends, some spend the day without anyone. Call your local retirement home and check into the volunteer opportunities they offer for helping with crafts, special events, playing cards or just spending time visiting.

At Apollo Insurance Services, we know that giving the gift of time is sometimes the best gift of all. That’s why we make the time each year to hold a Thanksgiving food drive for Caring for the Hills, our local food bank in Chino Hills. We hope you find time to share your time this holiday season – you’ll be glad you did!
